Nothing can change this aspect of TN panels, nothing.

Now perhaps you're referring to a 1080p IPS panel, i'm not sure. In any case, I still find it completely ridiculous to spend 1000$+ on a GPU and saddle it with a lowest common denominator resolution from 2007.

The monitor is about 75% of your experience IMO. How you visualize everything you do on your PC is completely dependent on the monitor setup, if that part of the equation is bad why bother with such expensive GPUs? Wouldn't high end monitor(s) make more sense? The first time I gamed at 2560x1600 I was in awe because it really is quite immersive (the size of 30 inchers are really immense, in a good way), I really have a tough time using 1080p these days.

I use a $3000 55" HX929 TV as a monitor. I directly compared it to a Samsung 970D this weekend. I returned the 970D in favor for the HX929, I even had second opinions that all favored the HX929. In the past I also compared it to a 2713H, and I once again favored the HX929. 55" at 6 1/2 feet is way more immersive than 30" at 2 feet. I had a Samsung 305T (2560x1600) for over 2 years before getting my HX929, so I did a bunch of comparisons before deciding to use it as a monitor. tongue.gif

I have lots of experience with 1440p/1600p monitors, and none of them have beaten my HX929 overall. I will be buying a U3014 when they release, and if this $1500 IPS panel cannot beat it then i'm giving up and staying 1080p for quite some time.

Why even bother if you have an HX929??? That is a gorgeous TV...

Your TV won't get beaten, the monitor will get trounced in black level, contrast, and shadow detail.

And after a calibration, the color accuracy will be the same as well. The only caveat is how you're comfortable playing, from a few feet away or from 5 feet+ away.

I got a Panny 65VT50 over Christmas, and it makes my IPS monitor's blacks look gray. Resolution is pretty overrated when comparing image quality at a suitable distance (ie not on a phone or tablet close to your face). Contrast and black level are much more appealing. Until OLED and 4K is a reality, pick one or the other.
